Being a reporter can’t be easy. If you aren’t lucky enough to be an anchor, you’re just a regular shmo. Forced to go wherever the story is, whatever the story is. And sometimes, the story is total bullshit. But you smile through the pain, because this is your job. And if you can’t make the 14th annual Bulldog Beauty Contest seem as important as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, then goddammit, someone younger and prettier probably will. Even being an actual anchor won't shield you from the possibility of losing your shit on national television. And if these absolutely insane news anchor meltdowns can show us anything, it’s that that possibility is more real than you would imagine.
